Published by the Newington History Group, 144 pages. Paperback (N5660)
Newington is a village in Kent, and this book provides a fascinating history of the place and its people during the First World War, with particular emphasis on the villagers who fought (and died) during the conflict.
From the rear side cover: A local account of a small Kentish village during the Great War. Newington, near Sittingbourne, found itself at the centre of the home defences of trenches and gun emplacements awash with Buffs and Royal Engineers. The village lost 40 heroes and welcomed home 131 men who survived. This book records the experience of the community during the war; its impact and the military and social lives of these brave men, across Army, Navy and Air Services.
